“I can’t imagine a better way to see the beauty of the Seattle than going on a hot air balloon ride!” said Jay after flying with Seattle Ballooning. In addition to the previous statement, Jay says, “this should be a “must try” for anyone with visiting out-of-town guests who really want to see how pretty it is here.”

Seattle Ballooning has been providing hot air balloon rides in front of Mt. Rainier since 2015 and has all 5-star reviews.  They were awarded the “best hot air balloon ride” in the Seattle area since 2016. They offer private hot air balloon rides for two, private family hot air balloon rides (up to 10), and small shared group hot air balloon rides.

Seattle Ballooning’s chief pilot Eliav Cohen says, “Every balloon ride is magical and special whether it’s the breathtaking views of downtown Seattle, Tacoma, Lake Tapps, or Auburn. One of the most amazing experiences is watching eagles hunt for their morning breakfast and enjoying the sun peaking over the Cascades from three thousand feet in the air!”

In addition, you get an up-close view of the majestic Mt. Rainier — an exclusive flight path no other hot air balloon ride service offers.
